This is so sad and terrible....What are all of your thoughts on gun control and how it is in America? In MN you can walk around with a gun and it's kind of scary to see businesses that have signs saying, "WE BAN GUNS ON THESE PREMISES." This is an example of why I think, something more should be done.
Sheriff: 9-year-old kills mother, self
A 9-year-old Arcola, North Carolina, boy shot and killed his mother
before taking his own life, according to the Warren County Sheriff's
Taylor Jones apparently killed his mother, 38-year-old Gloria Pulley,
shortly after midnight Saturday morning, the department said. He left
a suicide note in which he apologized for her death.
Authorities have not been able to determine a motive.
"They were a very nice family. I never had any problem with none of
them," said Warren County Sheriff John Williams, who said he knew the
Jones is said to have had a good relationship with his family members
and friends, Williams said. There was no obvious discord between him
and his mother, he said, and it's unknown if he was on any type of
medication or if he had any mental or emotional issues.
Williams said family members became worried over the weekend after
not seeing Pulley or Jones for more than a day. Pulley's brother and
mother, who live nearby, kicked in the front door of the home
Saturday and found the two bodies in one of the bedrooms.
"A family gun" was used in the shootings, Williams said, but it's
unknown where and how the weapons was stored.
Autopsy results released to law enforcement by the North Carolina
Medical Examiner's office confirm the shooting was a murder-suicide,
Jones' father, Pulley's ex-husband, lives in Georgia.
